Rays-Blue Jays Preview

(AP) -- Time may have already run out on the Tampa Bay Rays' playoff hopes despite their impressive victory Friday night. The Toronto Blue Jays could soon be joining them if their starting pitching continues to get pummeled.

The Blue Jays hope Mark Buehrle can avoid what would be the longest single-season home winless stretch of his career and help end their tailspin Saturday against Tampa Bay.

Toronto's starting pitchers have posted a 5.81 ERA during the club's 5-13 stretch, the worst in the majors since Aug 1. Marcus Stroman gave up five earned runs over five innings in Friday's 8-0 loss to the Rays. It marked the sixth straight game in which a Blue Jays pitcher failed to put together a quality start.
